Clay College: The Clay Studio Associates Show

Clay College, in Millville, NJ, is where I have spent a lot of my time the last couple of years.  A fabulous resource for all things clay, it is run by CC's ceramic guru, nay, goddess, Jacqueline Sandro.


There is a sweet little exhibit is going on there at the moment, tucked into CC's brick-walled front gallery.  (CC is charmingly housed in part of an old Woolworth's store in Millville.) The artists are associates from Philadelphia's The Clay Studio.


Here are a few of my faves:

Larry Spitz
"New Growth"
Porcelain, Stainless Steel

Andrew Eastwood

Shannon Donovan
"100 Ws"
Earthenware, Glaze

"100 Ws" Detail

Kathryn Narrow
"Peach Pots"
Porcelain, Glaze

Also at the College was a fabulous demo by ceramic artist, Kathryn Narrow (whose gorgeous pots are above.)  She was wonderfully knowledgeable, approachable, and personable - all the best sorts of "-able".  She might have even gotten me over my fear of that finicky porcelain.

On my way out the door, (sniff - I miss Clay College -) I took this last photo.  For those of you who know me, my house is home to three avid skateboarders: two sons and a husband.  They are as obsessed with skating as I am with ceramics.  As you can imagine, there is NO overlap of these two worlds, so the below photo is a happy crack in the space-time continuum.
